THIEVES are stealing paving stones in Marsden, creating danger for pedestrians.
Paving stones have been taken from two different areas, Argyle Street and Station Road.
The missing stones have left large holes in the ground, making it dangerous for pedestrians, especially at night, when the holes may not be so visible.
Dorothy Lindley, a former Kirklees councillor who lives on Station Road, said: "Not only does it look unpleasant, it is extremely dangerous. It is only a matter of time before someone has an accident."
The paving stones have been targeted for the last few weeks. Thieves appear to take two or three at a time.
Mrs Lindley said: "It is very unfair. Public money has been spent to make the area nice and it is just being ruined."
The areas of concern include Argyle Street, opposite The Riverhead pub, and at the top of Station Road, towards the National Trust offices.
Mrs Lindley added: "The top of Station Road is particularly dangerous, as the holes are extremely deep."
"I would like whoever is responsible to think how they would feel if somebody they care about injured themselves because of their actions."
Anybody with any information about the thefts is urged to contact Huddersfield police.
